Exports your database, does a find and replace on URLs and file paths, then allows you to save it to your computer.
I do a lot of maintenance for my clients' websites, and use this plugin to make copies of their sites on my local server for testing. This plugin makes that process so much quicker and easier than when I was doing it manually. It just works. Huge life safer.
the official WP imorter is broken (can't handle images: http://www.wptavern.com/whats-going-on-with-the-wordpress-importer). For now, this plugin is a nice helper.
I'm glad I picked up the developer license of the Pro version of this plugin. I use it pretty much every day and it's saved hours of work. Thanks Brad!
Wonderful plugin, I use it every time I need to migrate a wordpress installation!!!
Yay! This is a really big time saver. And the Pro version is a great idea, will definitely be buying it. Great work!
This plug-in is awesome, it still leaves some stuff untouched that one has to update manually (like perma-links or layer slider locations and other 3rd party strings), but in most cases it only takes up to some minutes to fix.
I have had to be careful with old sites that were never converted to UTF-8 properly, so beware of that (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/utf-8-db-converter/ worked a charm)
This is my preferred way to migrate between servers and promote from dev to live.
We use WordPress Migrate DB as an essential component of our deployment process for clients. With the ease of use and find and replace options, WP Migrate DB makes for a smooth experience in what is often the most stressful time in website development.
This is by far one of the best WordPress database migration utilities around and it just got much better with the PRO version - this plugin makes migrating any WordPress db a total breeze!
